Airstream monogrammed mudflaps?

Anyone know of a source for mudflaps that are monogrammed with "Airstream" or related? Yeah, I know they will cost a fortune, but when the AS isn't behind me, I'd still like everyone to know what's in my driveway or parked at the campground

Very nice well made piece.

I got these from an Airstream dealer store. I had to paint the letters so they show up. Good quality at about $40 pair.

RobertCross -

Be vigilant with that - the nameplate peels off REAL easy and disappears just as easily. Ours was on the TV for about a month before it was stolen.

I have a license plate frame that say's AIRSTREAM .But I am also looking for an Airstream Nameplate that can be bolted to my flaps.MY flaps are about 24 in wide and are made from Big Truck 1/4 fender flaps.These had a company name on them that I painted over. I'm still looking. Maybe a trip to the AIRSTREAM Store is called for MAYBE!

I learned my lesson with those inserts, had my Suburban one stolen a week after install. Locked on now!! Hope the logo stays put, it won't be subjected to our wonderful winter weather. So here's hope'n.

Our 345LE has them. They were on it when we purchased the MH and I always presumed they are original equipment.

Yeah, they left the insert and stole just the nameplate - peeled it right off!

My daughter found the AS nameplate in the old font on the internet (see post #5 above) and had them mailed to me. Made of plastic, they were both broken in transit, in the same spot. I used Gorilla Glue to adhere them to my mud flaps 2 or 3 years ago. I guess I'm a bit surprised, but they are still there & looking good.

We picked up a rear license plate holder@ the International in Salem that says
"I tow an Airstream" Works for me.

Try DuraFlap, Several New England Unit members had them make flaps with an Airstream embossed on them. They can show you what we had made and will custom make any image. Pricey but worth it.

slight change of topic

OK, so the hope of finding someone that already makes Airstream monogrammed mudflaps is now a bit gone...not paying $$$ for custom.

That being said, what is a GOOD mudflap to protect the AS? I don't really want the big ones that hang from the bumper or are a hitch add-on. I'd like something that is directly screwed to the fender behind the wheel. We have an Excursion, so there is the option of factory / custom molded, but to me this doesn't seem to be enough to protect the AS. Anyone found good, long, wide, fender-mount flaps that they are happy with?

Iv'e tried a number, both factory and aftermarket on two different Burbs.

None worked very well on the back-roads we frequent in the Adirondacks.
Broke down last year and got the Tow-tector brush guard, works for us.

4x4 shop might have something you could adapt...

If you have the Enkay mud flaps - they come with a thick rubber area where the Enkay logo is attached with screws. Ita a laser etched piece of aluminum or SS. You can have a plate etched locally - and not all that expensive. I had a screen door guard special made for well under $100 and I'm sure the mud flap logos would be less. I told the guy no rush and he used scrap metal pieces from an old job to do it - saved money there.

Got me thinking about my mud flaps - right now I have reflective tape there.
